Once pastureland and now preserved as wildflower meadow and grassland, the 25-acre North Common Meadow contributes to the rural charm and character of Petersham Center. A gentle, 1½-mile loop trail takes visitors from an 1830s law office on Main St. around a lovely lily pond, out to East St., and back through the meadow to Main St., on the way providing a wonderful view of Mt. Wachusett far to the south and perhaps the songs of grassland birds. A spur at one point in the loop connects with the Roaring Brook Tract of the Brooks Woodland Preserve.

Directions:

From Petersham center, go north on N. Main St. 0.1 mi. to sign on right.
